Xbox series X stock – live: today’s UK news on the restocking of Game, Currys, Smyths, Argos and more
Microsoft Flight Simulator will occupy 100 GB of your Xbox storage
Update: according to an email sent to customers, Curries will restock the Xbox series X this week.
Now eight months after its launch, the Xbox Series X continues to be mired in supply chain issues, making it nearly impossible for buyers to find Microsoft’s next-gen console in stock online.
The cheaper Xbox Series S is easier to find in most UK stores, but the more powerful Xbox Series X is more in demand. New stocks appear sporadically and sell within minutes.
If you want to know where to buy an Xbox Series X today, we’ve got you covered. Our live inventory tracking blog will keep you up to date with the latest inventory drops as they happen, along with all the news on planned replenishment dates and milestone events.

Can you buy an Xbox Series X from a real store?
The Xbox Series X is rarely spotted in the wild, but it really does exist. We’ve heard of in-store restockings at John Lewis & Partners, Game, and Smyths Toys, while retailer online stores have reported that the Xbox is sold out.
We are keeping an eye on availability in physical stores across the country to the best of our ability, based on advice, social media posts, and reports from satisfied buyers.
In-store restockings will most likely be sold out by the time you hear about it from us, so your best chance at finding an Xbox in the real world is to walk around your local stores and start asking questions.

What are the chances of a Very restocking today?
We had high hopes for a very resupply last week, only to have those hopes dashed again and again.
All indicators pointed to an Xbox Series X restocking happening at Very alongside retailer PS5’s highly anticipated restocking. But no such Xbox restocking materialized, casting doubt on our favorite theory about Xbox / PlayStation Synchronized Drops.
We’ll continue to check for new availabilities at Very, so stay with us for updates.

When will Smyths have the Xbox Series X in stock?
Smyths Toys is currently sold out in the Xbox X series, but may have more stock soon.
The retailer restocked the Xbox All Access program on August 5. And last week, Smyths Toys in Ireland restocked the base Xbox Series X console, even though it wasn’t available for purchase in the UK.
We also hear that it is possible to find the console in some physical stores. If you have a local branch, it’s worth dropping by and inquiring about availability.
When the Xbox is in stock online, Smyths is one of three retailers – along with Game and 4Gadgets – to offer the Xbox All Access program, a paid alternative to buying the console at full price. You pay £ 28.99 per month for 24 months, get Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, and own the console at the end of the term.

Will Amazon have Xbox Series X shares today?
Let’s go over a few other retailers and assess their chances of producing the goods this week.
Amazon – Luck of replenishment? Fair.
Has the PS5 in stock right now for Prime customers. There’s a good chance the Xbox Series X will follow soon.
Argos – Luck of replenishment? Thin to medium.
Restocked the Xbox Series X last week, so there’s probably nothing left in the room.
Tesco – Luck of replenishment? Zilch, nada.
The UK’s largest retailer hasn’t had Xbox Series X in stock since its launch and doesn’t seem to care too much about restocking Microsoft’s next-gen console.

Does Game have Xbox Series X actions?
Xbox Series X is currently sold out across the board.
Game – the UK’s largest video game retailer – restocked the Xbox twice last week and may do so again today.
Both times the console was only available as part of the Xbox All Access program, a buy-it-now program where you pay £ 28.99 per month instead of £ 449 up front.

Where is the Xbox Series X in stock this week?
Which retailers do we think are most likely to get more Xbox inventory this week?
Currys PC World is pretty much at the top of our list. The store re-stocked last week by prematurely selling the Xbox Series X inventory it didn’t yet have.
Customers who ordered the console only to find it out of stock received an email confirming that new stock for Xbox Series X would arrive this week.
Currys is reserving consoles for customers who placed orders last week, so it’s not clear if anyone else will get a bite of this particular replenishment cherry.
